    A place that you cannot miss.
    The square, the buildings around, the basilica, the towers, the market, the restaurants with outside seating views, the souvenirs shops around!
    I loved to walk around the square during day and night and see people following their lives!

    The Royal Castle on Wawel hill was established at the times of King Casimir III the Great (14th century). It was enlarged over the centuries around an Italian-styled courtyard. It shows several styles from Romanesque, to Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. It was the seat of Polish kings until 1609, when the capital was moved to Warsaw.

    Today the castle hosts a museum, with several paintings, statues, porcelains, silverware and items from the far east. I found the paintings collection quite interesting, and the state rooms were also good. The collections of porcelains (both European and Far Eastern) and the silverware collections are - according to me - not so interesting as the paintings.

    Beautiful during both day and night. Frequently busy as it is a way into the main town. Oddly felt safe, even at night time as there are still plenty of people about.

    Up ,out and about on a beautiful but cold February morning, my twin brother and I headed from Stare Miasto where we were staying over to the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) to have a day out exploring this historic and vibrant district of this fascinating city, we visited Ulica Szeroka ,a street we always look forward to visiting.
    This street is located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, along this street you'll find the Wolf Pepper Synagogue, Remuh Synagogue and the Old Synagogue which are beautiful places of worship that thankfully survived the horrors of the German occupation of World War Two, also along the street are some amazing pubs,bars,cafe's and restaurants, we enjoyed beers in Krokodyli Pub ,its just a fantastic street to check out if you're planning a holiday to Krakow and find yourself in the Jewish Quarter.

    Dzielnica Zydowska is the central plaza that opens up from the Old Synagogue ( Stara Synagoga ) .
    There's lots of interest here ,the beautiful synagogue's such as Old Synagogue, Remuh Synagogue and Wolf Popper Synagogue, there's some really touching monuments relating to the plight of the Jewish faith during World War Two and of course you have the pubs,bars, cafe's and restaurants on this square ,its such an exhilarating place to visit if you're in the Jewish Quarter, easy to locate, just walk along Ulica Szeroka.

    There were some teenagers abseiling down one of the tower structures here. They were brave to even climb up it. An excellent piece of entry level ‘urban exploration’.

    Kazimierz district ( Jewish Quarter ) is one of my favourite area's of this city to visit, although I always stay in the Stare Miasto district I have whole days out here ,I love the history attached to this area,if one street encapsulates all that's amazing about Kazimierz district its Miodowa.
    This is quite a long street, lots of interesting buildings along this street such as Temple Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues in Krakow, you can't ignore the atrocities that occurred in this district and even along this street during World War Two, I love nothing better than strolling down this street and enjoying the architecture, atmosphere and dropping into a bar or pub along Miodowa.
    Well worth checking out if you're in the Kazimierz district of Krakow.

    This historic St Mary Magdalene Square is situated at Grodzka Street which is part of the Royal Route in Krakow.

    Two impressive churches can be found next to the square: the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul and the Church of St Andrew.

    In the middle of the square is a quite new monument to Piotr Skarga (1536-1612), a Polish Jesuit. It was unveiled in 2001.
